Bandokay of North London drill collective OFB has sent a message to his fans amid speculation he’s behind bars after being arrested for gun possession.
The mother of his child shared a short recording of the rapper on her Instagram Story.
“I just want to say sorry to my fans,” Bandokay says on the recording. “I feel like I let you lot down. I’ll be home soon. You lot been with me from the beginning of my journey and we’re not stopping now. Tell my fans just keep holding me down, don’t switch up. Same for my family and friends.”
She also shared a video of the rapper as a bailiff escorted him out of the courtroom.
Official details of his arrest are scant, with rumors swirling that cops nabbed Bandokay for gun possession. The OFB rapper is the son of Mark Duggan, whose killing at the hands of British police in 2011 sparked riots in London that spread across the country.
Bandokay was previously tried for his alleged role in a knife fight at London’s world-famous Selfridges department store. His uncle Marlon Duggan was cleared of violent disorder after he claimed he was acting as a peacekeeper during the incident.
The jury was unable to reach a verdict against Bandokay. Fellow OFB member Double Lz, real name Andre Deer, was convicted of violent disorder.
Bandokay’s current legal woes are believed to be unrelated to the Selfridges incident.
